Modeling SysML States in GENESYS

In the past few months I’ve been writing about how to model basic SysML concepts of behavior using GENESYS. SysML has three largely separate approaches for modeling behavior: activities, interactions, and states. I’ve covered the modeling of behavior using activities and interactions in August (Modeling SysML Activities in GENESYS) and …

Modeling SysML Interactions in GENESYS

In last month’s blog, Modeling SysML Activities in GENESYS, I discussed how to model behavior using activity diagrams. What, though, are interactions? Interactions are a UML concept brought over into SysML that can be used as an alternative approach for modeling behavior in SysML. Interactions are distinct from activities and …

Modeling SysML Activities in GENESYS

Modeling behavior in SysML can be painstaking and difficult to communicate to a broad range of stakeholders. Fortunately, GENESYS makes it easy to use SysML constructs in a way that facilitates a comprehensive and consistent behavioral model and makes it easier to discuss with a broad range of stakeholders. What …

Modeling SysML Blocks in GENESYS: Part II

Last week, in Part 1 of this series, I described how GENESYS displays SysML block features in compartments on block nodes. This week I’ll continue the discussion and describe how GENESYS deals with the SysML relationships of composition, references, generalization, and dependencies on a Block Definition Diagram, or BDD. Blocks …
